This is my VF page using lightning component

enter image description here

And I would like to display popup like this,

enter image description here

Please any one suggest me the better idea,


I had a similar challenge to build, but with a button. I managed to succesfully build a popup like you want, but I'm not 100% sure if it works in your code, but it's definitely worth a try.


In your component you need two extra div's:

<div class="slds">
    <div aria-hidden="true" role="dialog" class="slds-modal slds-modal--prompt slds-fade-in-hide" aura:id="modaldialog">
        <div class="slds-modal__container">
            <div class="slds-modal__header slds-theme--info">
                <button class="slds-button slds-button--icon-inverse slds-notify__close" onclick="{!c.hidePopup}">
                    <c:svg aria-hidden="false" class="slds-button__icon slds-button__icon--large" xlinkHref="/resource/SLDS105/assets/icons/action-sprite/svg/symbols.svg#close">
                    <span class="slds-assistive-text">Close</span>
                <h2 class="slds-text-heading--medium">Your Title</h2>
            <div class="slds-modal__content slds-p-around--medium">

This div is a hidden div (slds-fade-in-hide does that for you) which will display your form. The second div will display a dark background:

<div class="slds-backdrop slds-backdrop--hide" aura:id="backdrop">


I assume that you have a controller to render your form, and that this form is a different component. If not, you should consider building it, as it's really easy.

Your helper class should look like this:

function_name :  function(component, event, helper){
//called on clicking your button
//run your form render code after that, run the following lines
helper.showPopupHelper(component, 'modaldialog', 'slds-fade-in-');

You'll also need a function to drop the screen (on cancel for example) as you can see in my component example, I called it hidePopup, this is what's in it:

helper.hidePopupHelper(component, 'modaldialog', 'slds-fade-in-');
helper.hidePopupHelper(component, 'backdrop', 'slds-backdrop--');


You'll need a couple of methods here:

  1. The method to call the form component, I assume you know how to do this. The only thing you have to do here is put that component in v.body like this component.set("{!v.body}", component);
  2. the showPopupHelper shows the correct popup

        showPopupHelper: function(component, componentId, className){
            var modal = component.find(componentId);
            $A.util.removeClass(modal, className + 'hide');
            $A.util.addClass(modal, className + 'open');
  3. the hidePopupHelper hides it when done and, because I use this popup for multiple components, it empties the body, so that next time you'll click it, you don't get the old body first.

        hidePopupHelper: function(component, componentId, className){
            var modal = component.find(componentId);
            $A.util.addClass(modal, className+'hide');
            $A.util.removeClass(modal, className+'open');
            component.set("v.body", "");

I hope it's a bit clear for you, good luck!

  • Thanks for the solution.. Exactly what i am looking for. And i have changed my existing component into your aproach and worked like a charm. thank you so much! – SFDC_Igle Jun 5 '16 at 7:59
  • Nice! I'm glad it worked :) – Bagpiper001 Jun 6 '16 at 8:12
  • What's the key to show that modal. I am open document page lightningdesignsystem.com/components/modals/#overview, copy code to my file, and don't know how to make it work. I just want to see a working example. – Stiger Sep 26 '16 at 11:31
  • Hey @Stiger, you can do that via a button which calls some javascript in your helper class, which assigns your component to v.body, and then call the helper.showPopupHelper, which I showed in my answer. Good luck! – Bagpiper001 Sep 27 '16 at 5:46
  • Thanks @Bagpiper001, I found it, it have to put inside .slds class. I miss that piece. Thanks – Stiger Sep 27 '16 at 17:51
